Default How's everyone's love life going?


I recently got, and then lost, some girls number. Luckily, I got someone else's number from my school.

Also one of my female friends, who's acting very strange lately, is pissed at me. I think its because I said she wasn't hot.

How's everyone else's going? Good, bad? Nonexistent?

Nonexistent, I believe. I'm honestly too busy with school and work and other million things to have a love life. Or maybe I'm convincing myself that I'm busy.

Anyway I'm going for nonexistent. Maybe I'll go for 'good' after a few months. Hmph.

Mine is in a lull. Or a trough. Or a slight dip.

Okay, it's a bottomless pit right now. But the flesh is willing, even if the spirit is occasionally lacking.

Ride out that red tide, mate!

I'm on the rebound here. A horrible break up and now I'm back on the market for something new to regret. I've got an atrocious taste in women, yet I still entertain myself. I'm some kind of wicked, hedonistic masochist. Haha.

In any case, I'm eyeing a couple chicks right now; one is my ex-girlfriend's best friend (we're talking about a different ex-girlfriend right now, not the horribly disastrous one I mentioned above), and the other's a friend of a friend. Unfortunately (but characteristically), I'm more attracted to the former.

Let's see how I can screw it up this time!

Dead. Even when I'm not too busy, it's dead.

Tip for any guy consoling an eternally single girl, DON'T tell her you don't understand why she's single, or that she'll find someone. It's patronising and just makes us hate you along with the rest of the planet. Believe me.

That works the other way around too, Kal.

When my female friends give me the "You're such a great guy, you'll find someone" speech, it's like "Owwwwwwww!"

Still, they insist that they wanna be my pimps, so that's something.

When I used to meet a new woman who looked good, I immediately began to think of her as my future ex-girlfriend. Couldn't help it. Been there too many times.

I don't understand why you're single, and of course you'll find someone. Hurhur.

But more importantly... I missed you Kal!! Where've you been my entire life?! Gawsh!

In any case, got the go ahead from the ex-girlfriend to work my swag on her bff. I'm kind of stoked, and at the same time a bit demoralized. I didn't exactly get the largest vote of confidence in my abilities. But, whatever she or anyone says, a shot's a shot, and I'll be damned if I'm going to just let the opportunity pass. No more days of this Jaz saying, "Oh, bollocks. I should have talked to ______"

Yes, more updates for you extra nosy folk:
So, I get a text from my friend (the one I've been referring to as ex, but we're really actually friends now), telling me how her friend is fiending some other guy something nasty.

Then we have me.

Hm, let's see. Maybe it's this mild fever I'm running that's just demoralizing me, but I hate competition in this instance, especially if she's not even gonna look at me. Oh well, what can I say? I hate being right.

All I know, is I'll kick myself just as badly for not even giving it a shot. Bad enough to regret not getting what I want, but even worse for not even trying. So let's ride this out until I realize its not working in my favor. I'm going to clock myself to my next mistake, stay tuned!

You're too young to feel happy about not having a love life. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I have a great love life in my novel. He's a little messed up, I'm a little messed up but we work. Now to find that man in the real world I've been hearing so much about. After I've got a job, a loan, applied for my masters, laucnhed my magazine, sold out of my copies, ordered more, got another part time job to cover me to a real one, or my masters left my current part time job and got another one to go with the other one I just got.

Think I can find a perfect guy who'll fit in around all that? He best be pretty damn slim.

Right here, obviously. My floor's still nice and clean, waiting for you to come state side!

Also, I think I'm giving up on my endeavor to make anything happen with this girl (though I'm still enamored by her smile...) but it's just going to get too complicated, and I'm actually stopping myself this time. She's a cool chick, not going to be good for much beyond good friends though. (Well, she would be, just not in my case, hurhur.)

So now, my love life is back on the rocks. Back to the hunt. Unsure I want to pursue the second girl I mentioned in my first post here. Ugh, I hate being lost. Or maybe its just this damn sickness that's wrecking my perceptions!

I've seen enough bad relationships and marriages to be turned off. Just about all of the friends I've ever had have been guys, and they've proven to me that they're absolutely insane and have no idea of what they want. I like being around them though, they give me a good laugh.
All I need from a guy is hugs and friendly kisses. I'm not a fan of excess or attention.

I predict all that will change when you meet Mr. Right.

Depends on who you ask. From my perspective, life is going great. According to others, I have yet to make a substantial contribution to society.

I don't understand how you can love someone so much and still feel like bashing their head against the wall sometimes..

Because love's not perfect. Love doesn't mean you won't fight, and it doesn't mean you're going to necessarily like the person all the time, it just means that you're going to get through it eventually.

As of now, nonexistent. There's a special lady I've been talking to though, and there's very little skepticism in my attempts to get together with her. She has to be the first do-good girl I've ever found myself attracted to, but I've always found love to be rather irrational.

Lousy. Lost mine when I broke my ankle a couple weeks ago. Apparently it's only fashionable to talk with a gimp, not to hang with him, let alone hook up. Honestly it's really shown who my real friends are.

It sucked though, really. I couldn't go to prom as I'd just had surgery.

No. I wasn't in a relationship. But at parties it's impossible to even get a girl to think about hooking up with you when you've got an enormous cast.

I was in a long distance relationship for a few months with a girl I have known for 6-7 years and dated before and have been best friends with at times.

She called it off as apparently the distance was too much for her.

I was sure she was the one too and I doubt I'll ever get over her considering she's been such an important figure in my life. I basically grew up with her.

We still talk and are platonic friends though we didn't talk for a few months afterwards.

Lately though a friend has pretty much forced me into a new relationship with a girl I hardly know and don't really have an interest in either. I feel bad because I have such mixed emotions. It feels so forced and wrong but at the same time I want to see where it goes because it might help me get over my lost love.

At this point I would feel like a complete asshole if I called it off anyway. But I never really asked for this relationship either.

I guess I just feel bad for her because I know I can't be as emotionally involved with anyone after my recent breakup. I'm not very big on this dating thing either. It was never my scene growing up and I still think it's ridiculous so I feel even more awkward and out of place around her. The worst part though is I don't feel like I can be myself around her and we're in a relationship when we don't know anything about eachother. It's just asking for trouble - but I'm curious at the same time.

What I mean is, don't jump into a relationship until you're ready Helix. If you want to grieve for your love lost then you go ahead and be sad. There is nothing wrong with taking time to heal. You will be doing yourself and your future partners a favor.

Secondly, if you can't be yourself then what's the point? We should feel free around our loved ones, be comfortable around them. If you want to be in this relationship because you're curious then that's okay too, just make sure that you're honest with yourself and with the other person involved.

I've been in a long distance (1700 miles and another country) relationship almost 6 months now, and I don't regret it for a moment. I can do the lonely nights because I know that there is no one else on this earth that I would rather be with. I'm happy with my life and comfortable in my skin, and I don't need constant approval from a significant other to validate my life. We'll figure out where to make our home in time, and we'll do it together.

So take time to heal if that's what you want to do. Take time to explore new things, if that's what you want to do. Find yourself, be honest with yourself, and everything else will fall into place.

Sorry for the ramble. Have a SUPER DAY!!!
